A last minute Christmas gift!

Nothing like some last minute sewing.....And when I say last minute I mean last minute........
On Christmas morning when the boys were opening there prezzies DH asked me if I had gotten anything for J, J and Z his cousins kids. I hadn't as I told him the week before who I got prezzies for and was there anyone I missed, his reply NO......I then asked him again on the Tuesday before Christmas to be sure...Still the answere was NO noone else!!!!!!!!!! So on Christmas morning I was in a panic searching the house for gifts.....I had a car stashed away for Dominic for his 1st birthday so that would be ok for Z, I had a rattle in the packet still in my nappy cake stash, so perfect for J as he is only a few months old....But nothing for the other J....As we wouldn't be seeing the 2 J's till dinner DH said not to worry we would go to his Aunty for lunch and maybe AJ would get something we could regift......Well AJ ended up opening everything and the things he didn't unwrap were too good to regift.........
We came home and the boys had a sleep and I jumped on the net and done a quick search of something I could quickly whip up, I found this tute for a crayon roll, so I quickly searched my stash and whipped one up, so from searching for a tute to wrapping the prezzie was less than an hour, so I started at 4pm and we were out the door at 5pm.....Not bad!!!!!
I said to DH 'Aren't you lucky I can sew?' otherwise we would of had nothing to give to J........
The only thing was I didn't even have a colouring in book to put with it, only a blank artist book, I felt so scrungy, So I told the mother that it wasn't much, and she said no that was perfect as he doesn't like to colour but loves to draw......I don't know if she just told me that to be nice or if she ment it but he did sit for ages drawing in the book and he carried the crayon roll around all night never put it down, so that is good!!!!
The crayon roll all rolled up with the book.
Out flat before adding the crayons.

And with the crayons.
